Holograms and water in my ear

So, here is a color sample and a sketch from the new project I’m working on with Jason Rodriguez (aka: the writer). I still need to play around with the colors more, maybe add a texture or two, but that will have to wait. It’s time to shift this project into third gear and get rolling. Thumbnails are next.

On a side note, I just took a shower and I now have water in my ear that wont come out. I hate that…

I will post more as the project comes along.

Edit: Oh and please, I would love suggestions, comments and constructive critiques. This has a good chance of being published along side many other short comic stories in an anthology, I want this to be one of the best stories in the book. All comments and suggestions are welcome, thanks!

Rose nose

Did this one a couple weeks ago at the day job. I couldn't decide if it needed another coat of coffee stain, finally said no, no more. Then it sat in my back pocket for about five hours yesterday before I brought it home from work. I was drinking a lot of green tea this past week, tried to use it as a stain... not so good... perhaps if i let it steep for an extra 20 mins, but then I wouldn't be able to drink it. If I can't drink it whats the point?

Ruby lips

Yet another coffee stain from work. Black ballpoint, red pencil and the secret ingredient of course. I’m thinking about getting these matted and framed, see if I can get them in a gallery or a art show or something. The thing I like the most about these is they aren’t perfect, there are wrinkles in the paper, folds, creases, rips and tears, crude coffee stains. Place these on a nice clean white matte and encased in a nice pale whitewash frame, I think that would be a good contrast in textures. I think one could come up with some good subliminal meanings behind the contrasting textures if one was so analytically inclined. But that could be stretching it.

Jolie Lips

A new one from work, black ballpoint, coffee and red pencil. If any one is wondering, I use the tip of my finger to apply the coffee washes. You don't need fancy expensive brushes to make interesting art, get your hands dirty I say, it's more fun. I gave the eyes a little bit of color in Photoshop, and thats it.
